Harassment under sec 498a - dowry


 

My wife who is professionally qualified was doing job at the time of our marriage 3 years ago. She left job about 9 months after marriage.I am living with my old and ailing parents in a house owned by parents. I have 7 months old daughter. I am a self employed professional, belong to upper middle class. There is no financial problem. W have a common kitchen for all.

 

Right from day one my wife was ignoring my parents completely and refused to do any household job like cooking etc. and instigating/pressuring me to leave parents house and live in a rented house. I was persuading her not to do so as I am the only son of my ailing parents. After about 2 years of marriage, my wife started ignoring me also and also started sending abusive smses to me from her bedroom.

 

3 days before my wife threatened that she may commit suicide by locking her bedroom. I called her parents who took her. Before leaving our house, she locked herself in her bedroom and packed all the articles clothes etc. and all the gold ornaments she could lay her hands on. However before leaving she threatened me with dire consequences and told me she will teach e a lesson which I and my parents shall remember for lifetime.

 

I am apprehending that she may lodge a case with police against me and my parents under sec 498a.

 

I consulted an advocate who advised me to lodge an FIR. I am confused whether I do so first.

 

Please advise urgently . Thanks in advance

File a police complaint about her threat, and follow it up. This appears to be a case of criminal intimidation.

WRT your wife...This is called as roll-call kind of people.


If you are still reading this and not yet lodged a complaint against your wife, the sword is just swinging above your head. Run fast, to the police station, lodge complaint.

1. First preserve all abusive SMS in original media.
2. Go to police station in your area and submit an application stating briefly in 1 page wife leaving without consent and taking yours as well as hers valuables and mention probable articles that she took. Also mention in the application she used to give threat of suicide and you are worried of her safety, security and well being and end the application with prayer to help you. Get the application diary entered with reporting officer of the day. Get the duplicate copy of the application received / signed / stamped by duty officer.
3. Now via reference hire an local advocate on retention basis and do two things till she does what she threatened to you while leaving; read all past discussions here in Criminal / Civil and Family Law forums and use the services of the retained advocate as and when required.

Your brief has scope of only above for the time being unless you are dying for her return and if so then via retained advocate file restitution of conjugal rights application before jurisdiction Court, otherwise above 1 - 3 are enough for the time being.

In my opinion there is no need to share with this non-legal lady member @ Ranee.... how well your wife or you performed or not performed in your respective bedrooms as she is asking you to tell her all that personal intimate details!    Your brief itself speaks that there were non-compatibility issues between you two which you both experienced as couple and thus it is not necessary to share more to seek legal opinion here in public forum. Probably this lady member does not even know that a couple can seek divorce while still living under same roof (home) but should not be sharing same bed which is to say they can jolly well stay in separate bedrooms yet approach Court for their legal remedies.

The wife started wignoring him from 2 years of marriage that means they are living separately for last one year.If she was living separately why husband filed divorce for denial of s*x? Again all husband asking divorce make such stories.If she has taken her belongings then what is husband's problem?

Mr. DArun Kumar!!I am not a legal person, as if you a senior advocate of Supreme Court...:D
